ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — Maryland is the 11th to have at least 70% of its adult population get one dose of the coronavirus vaccine.

“This is a big deal. President Biden set a goal of getting 70% of adults in the country vaccinated by the Fourth of July. Here in Maryland, we said we wanted to get 70% of adults vaccinated by Memorial Day, and that’s exactly what we have done,” Gov. Larry Hogan said in a statement. “It was an ambitious goal, but once again, our healthcare heroes have risen to the occasion, as have the millions of Marylanders stepping up to get the vaccine.”

“Our health and economic recovery continues to outpace the nation. Of course, our work is not yet done, and with a summer of mobile clinics ahead, we will continue to do all we can to make sure no arm is left behind,” Hogan added. “If you still need to get vaccinated, we encourage you to visit any of our thousands of distribution points across the state.”

White House Chief of Staff Ronald Klain tweeted a congratulations to Gov. Hogan and California Gov. Gavin Newsom on the efforts to get their residents vaccinated.

Maryland reported 117 new COVID-19 cases and seven deaths Monday as hospitalizations and the state’s positivity rate continues to decline.

More than 2.91 million Marylanders are fully vaccinated. State officials also reported that the state positivity rate fell to 1.47%.

Hospitalizations went down by 13, now at 333 people hospitalized for the virus. Of those hospitalized, 246 are in acute care and 87 are in the ICU.

Since the pandemic began, there are 459,894 total confirmed cases and 9,402 deaths.

There are 2,910,300 Marylanders fully vaccinated. The state has administered 6,134,762 doses so far. Of those 3,224,462 are first doses with 5,233 administered in the last day. They have given out 2,674,701 second doses, 6,913 in the last day.

The state began to administer the Johnson & Johnson vaccine again in April, after the CDC and FDA lifted their pause on the vaccine due to a rare blood clot found in some women.

A total of 235,599 Marylanders have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, 722 in the last day.

The state reports 69.9% of all adults in Maryland have received at least one shot of the vaccine. Gov. Larry Hogan would like Maryland to reach 70% by Memorial Day.
